Real life ironies

I have a family law exam in about 8 hours. So frantic has my cramming become that I have begun snapping at my family.

If this pattern holds, I should actually injure myself finishing my Occupational Safety and Health project and then kill someone when I start doing my criminal law project next week.

Too much?

Yesterday, my son threatened to throw me out the window. I told him that the word is "defenestrate." Can't wait for the note from his teacher next year.

It reminds me of the time I went to Frost's parent-teacher conference, and her teacher told me that during reading time, they had been discussing what the author was "inferring" in a suggestive bit of text. I bit my tongue, but told Frost about the difference between "inferring" and "implying" on the way out of the school.

Off to my immigration exam. Frankly, the folks crossing the Arizona border have a better chance of passing. Of course, they also have a little more at stake.

Speaking of Irony

I have approximately 27 hours until my immigration final, for which I am woefully unprepared, when I run across this article discussing a movement to mentor children to become more studiously productive. I think I may check out some of these books, after finals.

Back to studious productivity.
